You could help clothe kids for school

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- As quick as the bags are stuffed with clothes, Lowcountry Orphan Relief already has new requests coming in.

"We have already over 400 orders in just the past two weeks, so in the next two weeks we will probably get another 400," supervisor Raegena Lawrence said.

The organization has clothed more than 12,000 children since 2006. Normally, the organization receives 200 orders on average per month.

"We are in dire need for boy's pants as well as backpacks," Chief Operating Officer, Jane Peck said. "You would think with school already starting they would have these, but we are even getting orders directly from the schools themselves."

Right now boy's shorts and pants have almost been wiped off the shelves. They need donations of boy's clothing sizes 6-20.

Unlike most of us, LOR depends on donations to clothe children of the tri-county community.

"If for any reason someone out there realizes they have gently used clothing to donate or they have picked up an extra backpack when they go buy their children a backpack they can certainly drop them off," Peck said.
